    Dell Venue 7 and 8 aim to undercut Nexus 7 with Intel innards

    With a gush of product releases this week the folks at Dell have come with more than just Windows – they’ve got a set of Dell Venue tablets running Android as well. Here we’re seeing the Dell 7 come with a 7-inch display while the Venue 8 works with work with an 8-inch screen, both of them fully touch-enabled and both of them appearing with optional 4G connectivity. What’s key with these releases for the company is making certain they’ll be able to compete with the most popular tablet on the market today – the Nexus 7 from Google.

    Dell has not be particularly successful with Android tablets recently – mostly because they’ve not released an Android tablet on a massive scale for a very, very long time. Here with the Dell Venue 8 and 7 though, they may be setting themselves up for a quick victory. Supposing the market is in the mood for yet another Android tablet in the first place, that is.

    The Dell Venue 7 will go into battle direct with the Nexus 7 with a price that’s more than just a little competitive: $149 USD. At that price, it’s likely Dell is aiming for those users who wish to use their slate for web browsing and basic social networking. We’ve yet to see if this machine can live up to the hype included with the processor power under the hood of the Nexus 7.

    Inside the Dell Venue 7 you’ll get a 1280 x 800 pixel IPS LCD display with a 1.6GHz Intel Atom Z2560 Clover Trail+ dual-core processor. Alongside this Intel SoC you’ll find 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage – and there’s a microSD card slot too for an additional 32GB of space. This machine also works with a 3-megapixel camera on its back, a VGA camera up front, and a single microUSB port for power and PC connectivity. This device will go on sale starting on October 18th, 2013.

    The Dell Venue 8 will come in at a rather surprisingly low price as well: $179 USD. At that price, this 8-inch tablet will also go into competition with the least expensive tablets on the market.

    • Clover Trail+ has proven to outperform the Snapdragon S4. What a great deal for $149.

      • Computerworld - Dell introduced four new low-cost tablets on Wednesday that run on Intel processors, shutting out ARM-based processors from its launch, even for Dell's Android machines.

        Two of the four tablets run on Android -- the 7-in. Dell Venue 7 and the 8-in. Dell Venue 8. Both use Intel's Atom Z2760 Clover Trail processors, a chip designed to conserve battery power.

        The Dell Venue 8 tablet is powered by Intel's Atom Z2760 Clover Trail processors. The tablet will sell for 179.99
        Intel developed the chip in part to compete against battery-conserving ARM-based processors built by Qualcomm and Nvidia, which have been suppliers for nearly all the Android-based tablets that have shipped.

        The Venue 7 will cost $149.99, making it one of the lowest priced tablets on the market, while the Venue 8 will cost $179.99.
